This meet up is suited for those who are just starting with photography, or anyone more experienced but wishes to learn the manual controls of their camera. Naturally, it would be best if you are using a DSLR (not a point-and-shoot).
If this format and structure becomes popular, we can hold them regularly.
We will start by running through the following basics: exposure, focusing, focal lengths, crop factors, depth-of-field, motion blur (or perhaps more importantly, no motion blur). Once the theory is out of the way, we will then practice the above concepts during a casual photo walk through Hong Kong Park located above the mall.
We will not be covering flash photography as I believe this is a higher-level topic that should not be explored unless the foundations are fully understood.
We are going to meet at Pacific Place Shopping Mall (Admiralty MTR Exit C1) at 3:00pm, this Saturday, Nov 3. Please see the exact meeting point in the map here: http://files.meetup.com/1868581/PP-L1.jpg . We will not have a fixed schedule but I predict the event will last a couple of hours.
Any questions / suggestions? Fire away!
